Where to find cheap Benriner mandoline in Vancouver?
I've heard stories of this particular mandoline being cheaper than $40 at Fujiya (they don't have any) or kitchen stores other than Ming Wo in Chinatown. Does anyone know of such a place? Thanks in advance!
I bought mine in Chinatown at one of the kitchen/restaurant supply places about a year ago. I don't remember the name of the store or which street it was on... but I can tell you the store was on the east side of Main St and it wasn't on E Hastings or E Georgia. I think I bought it for around $27. The price at Ming Wo was around $40 as well, IIRC.
Thanks for the tip. I just picked one up yesterday today for $25.99. The store is called Tinland Cookware on 260 E Pender. The mandolines are located behind the cash desk. The larger Super version is $49.99. They only take cash or debit. I first went across the street to Win Cheong Enterprises (261 E Pender) looking for the Benriner but they only had the Borner V-slicers for around $50, plus a really inexpensive Borner slicer for around $15, IIRC. Win Cheong takes credit cards but I got a 15% discount for paying cash for the items that I bought!
